Martin1“Mind if I smoke?” Mind if I fart? An inaugural member of Saturday Night Live’s exclusive “Five-Timers Club,” he’s a wild and crazy guy at heart that just wants to hold onto some big American breasts.

Tax free, in a Swiss bank account.

Afterwards, Roth mockingly comments how the flyer for the dance read 'No Blue Jeans.' "Oooh, I didn't have a thing to wear.."
